Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene took to the defense of 45th President Donald Trump after winning reelection, pushing back against those who claim Trump kept the Republican victories from reaching their full potential.
During an appearance on Real America’s Voice today, Greene offered harsh words for those who cast blame on Trump for the GOP’s failure to produce a “red wave” this election cycle.
“Now, they’re trying to blame President Trump today and I want to tell you how short sighted and ridiculous that is. It is pathetic. The people that are running out saying, ‘it’s Trump’s fault,’ no. That is a lazy, pathetic, wimpy, easy mindset,” Greene said.
“They just want one thing and then they want to carry on without doing the hard work, the real changes in the Republican Party, and the way we fight the fight.”

Greene went on to explain that President Trump has been “political persecuted” since the events of January 6, led dozens of rallies in support of Republican candidates, given hundreds of endorsements, held multiple fundraisers, and has raised over $350 million dollars on behalf of Republicans ahead of the midterm elections.
“Trump has been politically persecuted for the past few years now ever since January 6. He went out did 30 ‘Save America’ rallies all over the country.”
She continued, “He endorsed something like 285 candidates. He held over 50 fundraisers, helped raise over $350 million for all these Republican PAC organizations.”
“President Trump isn’t the problem. President Trump is doing everything he can to help Republicans across this country and help Republicans win while he is being politically persecuted worse than any human being in our country’s history. That’s the real truth.”
“People that want to blame Trump, they are lazy and that’s the problem. We have to do the real work, fix our issues in our party, to fix issues in our state elections and all over the country,” Greene said.
“We have to wrap up those issues instead of blaming one man. So, I’m not going to have that today. It needs to end and I’m sick and tired of it. We have to figure out how to come together and work this party,” Greene added.
Despite becoming a lightning rod for political attacks from Democrats, their allies in the media, and even Republican leadership, Greene was reelected to her seat in the U.S. House on Tuesday night in a landslide victory, defeating her Democratic challenger Marcus Flowers by over 31 points.
Thank you Georgia’s 14th district for putting your faith in me to be your voice and your representative in Washington.
It’s my privilege and my honor.
Thank you to all who support me. I am 100% dedicated to fight for America and the American people. I’m looking forward to it.

While Greene serves a very conservative district in Georgia, many Democrats were convinced their candidate, Flowers, would be competitive in the race due to Greene’s sometimes divisive national profile.
Flowers’ raised over $15 million, making his campaign the sixth-highest fundraiser among all congressional candidates in the 2022 midterm election cycle.
